Daring Bakers January Challenge!!

Time to let you all see the results of January 2014 Daring Bakers Challenge from The Daring Kitchen!!



The January 2014 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Francijn of “Koken in de Brouwerij”. She challenged us all to bake layered cakes in the tradition of Baumkuchen (tree cake) and Schichttorte (layered cake).

Of course I couldn’t just make a cake….so I tried a Baumkuchen Cupcake!! Francijn was amazing by challenging us with this, as most of us hadn’t heard of it before! It was very labor intensive and I was sweating a lot!!

So here is my Baumkuchen Cupcake with Chocolate Ganache and Fresh Fruit.

The beautiful little cupcake!!

So you can see the layers…I got 7 layers. After the first two I added a layer of apricot jam.

I hope you all enjoy this and maybe you’ll give it a try!!

Looking forward to next months challenge!

As always please keep our troops and veterans in your hearts and thoughts. If you’d like to make a donation or place an order to help a veteran in need, please go to Cupcakes Confidential.
